Letters

  • LETTER: St. Joe project highlights volunteer commitment to the parish

    What a beautiful effort to complete a wonderful project! This is the first thing I thought of upon the completion of the brick arc on the newly finished parking facility at The Basilica of Saint Joseph Proto-Cathedral in Bardstown. The design started over two years ago and now the newly paved and striped lot is in full use.

  • LETTER: Correction

    Correction

    An opinion column on Page A6 of the Aug. 7, 2019, edition of The Kentucky Standard incorrectly stated as a fact that U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar urged a city council in her Minnesota district to stop saying the Pledge of Allegiance.

    There have been no documented, verifiable accounts that any such discussion took place.

  • LETTER: Response to editorial

    This letter is in response to the opinion written by the editorial board of the Kentucky Standard on Aug. 7.

    As the owner of “one of the convenience/gas stations” the board referred to in the editorial, I take offense that customers cannot turn left going west on Highway 245 and that you are promoting a specific business in your editorial.

  • LETTER: A different pledge

    I was disappointed and saddened, though not surprised, to read the Nelson County Republican chairman’s column on Aug. 7 spouting lies, half-truths and symbolic patriotism in an effort to further stir the pot and get folks riled.

    I hereby submit my new pledge:

    I pledge defiance to the man

    Who distributed porn to America

    And to the type of Republican for which he stands

    One climate, under change

    Highly divisive

    Withholding liberty and justice from whoever they please

    Daniel Pascucci

  • LETTER: New Hope has new hope

    The residents of New Hope are fortunate. I say that because we are tucked into a beautiful country setting that is close enough to shopping, schools and hospitals, yet far enough away from the hustle and bustle of busy town life.

  • LETTER: Many helped to make Bloomfield’s 200th birthday special

    Our small community of Bloomfield recently celebrated a 200-year birthday. A lot of time went into the preparations, and three people really stand out to me.

  • LETTER: Abortion worse than Trump’s language

    I am writing this letter in response to your editorial of Sunday, July 21, 2019, titled “Democratic statement fell short.” In this article, the Nelson County Democratic Party leadership stated they wanted to condemn all forms of bigotry and hate. In part of the statement they said, “We believe that God requires that we respect all of his children and that we treat each of them with dignity whether or not we have the same skin color.” Really!

  • LETTER: Improper screening leads to problems
  • LETTER: Independence

    Masses of broken lives stand along the borders of this great nation seeking freedom.

    The question asked is, should they be allowed to come in or be told they have to go?

    Building a fence or destroying families is not freedom to choose, but freedom we lose.

    The freedom of others depends on God, who gives mankind freedom for all races.

    Would you want to give up your freedom and take their places?

    A fence along the borders is not the barrier that stands against freedom of this land.
